No sound from loud speakers.
I dont hear any notifications, no sound when I put a call on "speaker", no alarm sound, no music sound, nothing.
Phone calls work fine though. Everything works over the earpiece as well. Its just the loud speaker thats not working.
I have all the notifications and volume set to full.
I have tried restarting the phone.
Any ideas what to do???

Just want to add one more confirmation both of the problem and the solution! I lost sound/call alerting and chatted with AT&T tech support who suggested a reset, which I was reluctant to do with them remotely since it sounded like a real hassle. I found this forum and tried the thumb pressure on the speaker and it worked like a charm! Sound is back as good as before!

Yea i too have the same problem but i was just wondering do i actually have to open up the phone and press on the actual speaker in the phone ? Or just the speaker grill on he front of the phone .

I am having this same issue. I am on my 3rd Captivate. The one I have now is a refurb I got after my last one was stolen. I have had it for 5 months and this just started happening a couple of days ago. I'm afraid I will miss my alarm. I will try pressing on the speakerphone next time it goes out, but I'm thinking I need to take it in and get yet another replacement. Between the random shut offs and this, this phone is not built properly.

I had just finished some dubious activities on my phone when my speaker went out. The leap I made of course was that I had caused the problem. So of course I re-stocked, fixing the speaker, or so I thought.
The problem came back but thanks to you I know where the problem lies and have re "dubious-ed" my phone with all working well.
Thanks for taking the time to explain the solution.
